Paul Hurst makes confession about remaining Shrewsbury stars

Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst says there is no reason for players to leave the club this summer – but admitted it could happen.

The Town head coach took over in January – and although he signed Jack Hinchy on loan from Brighton and free agents Jack Price and Rayhaan Tulloch in the final weeks of the season, hardly any of the remaining nine players in Shropshire are players he has signed.

In fact, aside from Mal Benning, who recently secured a two-year extension, all the players in Town’s squad have been recruited by former bosses Steve Cotterill or Matt Taylor.

So Hurst is going to need to be clever in the transfer market this summer, but he does not necessarily think too many players will depart.
